TT - More Randomosity

My brain is fried and full of all the inevitable minutiae that pile up before a major trip so you're getting another random brain dump this week.

1. I am not going to lose weight if I end up eating the leftover crusts of my daughter's peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

2. I can't help it - they're on Jay's delicious homemade bread and are oh so good.

3. We're loving the new juicer, and Jay's even developed a way to turn the leftover mush into really good veggie burgers.

4. He's a pretty handy guy to have around :).

5. Tomorrow a good friend is throwing herself a big 40th birthday bash.

6. I promised to bake a peach cobbler to bring with me.

7. Which means I need to buy peaches tomorrow (and eggs and a few other assorted thing).

8. But I want to get my hair colored in the morning (can anyone say "major skunk stripe going on"?).

9. So I'll have to bake after that.

10. And I promised the kids I'd take them to the pool in the afternoon.

11. Which means that my spiffy professionally blown-out hair will not make it until evening.

12. Drat.

13. Oh well, it's too hot to leave it down anyway.

Happy Thursday everyone, hope it's a great one.

Ooooh! I never thought of using the veggie pulp for veggie burgers. I might just break out the juicer again and try to remember how it works.

Trish said...

Hope you have a good time at the party (and at the pool) - sounds like a super busy day!

Nicholas said...

Don't worry..... be happy!

Di said...

The hair is critical. Surely there is someone who owes you a favor who can take your kids to the pool while you sit in air conditioned comfort babying your fab hair!

Janet said...

Love that you're juicing and using the leftovers!!!

Lori said...

Great list. I want to get a juicer. They look so cool..Happy TT:)

Good luck with that cobbler. I'm with you on the spiffy do--many a one here has been sacrificed on the altar of motherhood!

Robert said...

Peach cobbler and the pool got my attention. Both sound wonderful in the summer.

I am seeing my hair goddess on Sat. I love the professionally blown-out air almost as much as bread and peach cobbler.

Just one of those days. So frustrating, isn't it?

Natalie said...

i am scared to get my hair done here! everyone loves to have their hair done with all the pampering that goes on. for some reason i end up with way less hair than i went in with and i feel stressed out!

hope you had fun at the pool and at the party!

Sandier Pastures said...

Goodluck with the hair! I hope it survives pool time :-)

Hootin' Anni said...

I LOVE random dumps....and I'm gonna pack a bag right now and follow you wherever you go with that peach cobbler!!!

My T-13 is posted. Come by for a visit if you can find time.

Lisa Knight said...

Great TT! The cobbler sounds yum, and I too have sacrificed good hair to the alter of motherhood (love that sandy!). Ponytail, that's high fashion here!!!

Oh … I love these ‘random’ posts but never seem to think of doing them myself these days. I so know what you mean about bread crusts with a hit of pb&j and the battle of the bulge. Getting daring with the hair color??? I missed my hair appointment yesterday, but the guy who does my hair is taking pity on me and squeezed me in this afternoon for a perm. He’ll get a BIG TIP today ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

rebecca said...

you have to tell me how he makes veggie burgers out of the pulps.... that is incredible! who would've thunk it? i need to try this...

This Eclectic Life said...

Not playing today, but I want recipes! Veggie burgers and peach cobbler. Put that in your notes for when you get back from your trip:-)
Pretty please?

Robin said...

Will do.

And the big news is... drumroll please... the hair survived! I put my hair up when I went in the pool and managed to keep it dry. It's not quite as perfect as this morning, but certainly good enough. Yay!

Maisie said...

Jay sounds very handy and like he's full of good ideas. I've got to get one of those juicers. But with 7 in our family, I can't imagine how much produce I'd be buying.

Lilibeth said...

Forget the hair. What I want to know is how did that peach cobbler do? ha ha.

pussreboots said...

If you stop cutting the crusts off you won't be tempted. Happy TT.

angie said...

I love these glimpses into your life!

SJ Reidhead said...

I am envious. You always seem to be having such a great time.

I don't know what a peach cobbler is but I love peaches, and I'd love to try it! And yes, I know too well about the 'skunk thing'...
Happy Thursday, and thanks for posting!

Genny said...

I love that your friend is throwing herself a party! Good for her! And that homemade bread sounds great!

Have fun!

Kelley said...

You would look white hot any old way babe.

Have fun!

Dillo said...

I, too, like your "random" posts.

Re the Pizza Crust eating---we call it "Daddy Disposal," and, no, it doesn't make for weight loss. But I paid for ALL THAT FOOD, darn it....and someone's gotta eat it!
